The New Grand Egyptian museum is to be opened in 2015

Dr Zahi Hawas announced that the New Grand Egyptian Museum would be opened in 2015. It is known that the New Egyptian Museum is located close to Giza Pyramids which will make it so much easier to visit both places without wasting time in the traffic of Cairo. Giza Pyramids are in Giza city which is in the west bank of the Nile and The Egyptian Museum is located in Cairo which is in the east bank of the Nile. Although the distance between Giza Pyramids and the museum is not very long but it is taken in much time because of the traffic except Friday and Saturday.
